Is Reece under- or over-valued?
Valuing Reece stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Reece 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Reece 's P/E ratio
Reece 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 36x. In other words, Reece shares trade at around 36x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Reece 's EBITDA
Reece 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $544.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Reece 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$6 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||6.89%|
|Gross profit TTM||$1.7 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||4.78%|
|Return on equity TTM||9.66%|
|Market capitalisation||$9.5 billion|
TTM: trailing 12 months
Reece share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 29.9% of net profits
Recently Reece has paid out, on average, around 29.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.82% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Reece shareholders could enjoy a 0.82% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Reece 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.12 per share.
While Reece 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Reece may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Reece 's shares ever split?
Reece 's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 17 December 2017. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Reece shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Reece shares which in turn could have impacted Reece 's share price.
Reece share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Reece 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.75 up to $14.8. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Reece 's is 0.439. This would suggest that Reece 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
